I need to rebuild our Windows Server 2003 machine running SQL 2005.  I have done a lot of research (and several posts here) but I am still needing some guidance.  What is the best way to move the ENTIRE SQL 2005 database to a temporary location while I rebuild the Windows Server 2003 box, and then move the SQL database back?  I need to move the ENTIRE (including system databases) SQL database to a temp location and then restore the ENTIRE SQL database back.
